22nd January 1949: “Mr. Steinberg’s Model”, Newcastle

These photographs capture an Alternative Model in Newcastle. Nothing is known of their purpose or the model in the photographs; they are simply referred to as ‘Mr Steinberg’s Model.’

The collection raises strong questions of an unknown Newcastle. Their dark and seductive content is suggestive of an underground and alternative scene with tones of theatrics and burlesque.

This is a collection of photographs found in the Turners Collection at Tyne & Wear Archives. Turners Photography Ltd was a commercial photographic company based at 7-15 Pink Lane, Newcastle. The collection has been sourced in contribution to Newcastle Fashion Week 2013.
